Definition of Ruffian Manicure

  1. A Ruffian is a style of manicure that incorporates two (or sometimes more) colours. The first is applied as usual. The second colour is applied over it, starting a little further away from the cuticle so that the original colour remains visible towards the base (and sides, if desired) of the nail. The effect looks like the top colour has grown out or shrunk to reveal the colour underneath.
